Re: .la files deps

Would an effort to remove /usr/lib/*.la and see what builds okay, be something important to do for FC5? Or not?

Absolutely. For shared libraries, in most(90%?) cases, the /usr/lib/lib*.la files packaged are superfluous. The are also a sort of cancer, that infects other .la files, causing library dependancy bloat (ie, adding extra Requires to -devel packages that include the infected .la files)

Here's a start of my efforts to help in this area:

subversion: http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzila/170029
  svn is tricky, it has lots of sublibraries
